I've been hoping for a couple years now that it would be Hoffman - there aren't that many actors who could 'get' JG's enormous wit, intelligence, and harder-to-spot ego - but I don't think he could work for the early years. Emile Hirsch is an excellent candidate.

What I meant about a potential GD flick killing this one is that, from a financing point of view, investors are less likely to support a non-GD Jerry film if a GD Jerry film is being made at the same time. The GD one would have a much larger interest level from the general public, and a much easier time finding money.

No question...a non-GD related project would be a really tough sell.

In a related topic, I've heard of a documentary about the Dead Heads themselves that came out some years ago...maybe while Jerry was even still alive...but i heard it wasn't very good (real shame--a great doc. could and should have been done on "the scene")...does anyone recall what that is and whether it's worth seeing?

And as forewarned above: No band pictures, No band music to be seen/heard

Hmmmm....seems crazy not to have any actual Dead music.

SDH: have you seen this? worth a Netflix rental?

As disappointing as this movie is, it doesn't even hold a candle to The End of the Road: The Final Tour '95, which is mostly incoherent interviews with incoherent "tour-heads" and uses Merl Saunder's Rain Forest record, with Jerry on guitar, as its soundtrack. Really, really, don't bother ...
